ENGLISH & WELSH LAW
The conditions laid out within these the terms and conditions by which our company operates are legally binding, they have been written for us by our solicitor and shall be governed by English & Welsh Law.
These very terms and conditions: In confirming a booking, you are acknowledging your agreement with the following terms and conditions, it is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the information provided. We actively encourage our clients to request copies of our terms of service in a number of ways.
Please inform us in advance of any heavy lifting required such as pianos and safes as more man power may be required to move them and the cost may vary. Failure to do so will result in the item being unable to be safely moved and you the client still being liable for the fully agreed cost of the removal.
If a fixed price for the job has been given this price may be varied if:
(a)The quantity of goods has increased (b)The floors between the goods has varied (c) If you require require us to dismantle / reassemble.(d) Delays in getting keys > 30 mins.
The quote provided is on the assumption that I will be able to park within 20metres of the pick up point. If we are unable to do so, we reserve the right to revise our quotation.It's the customers responsibility to pack everything properly.It's the customers responsibility to dismantle before our arrival any unit, system, furniture and beds. Upon request we can do this but there will be a surcharge for this.It's the customers responsibility to make sure that all items will fit in the new premises. (e.g. wardrobe, bed, sofa etc.) We are not insured for removing any doors or making new entrances to the premises.
I will endeavour to act and undertake my obligations at all times in a professional manner. Those obligations are: (1a) To be prepared to do all the lift and load (1b) Remove your items on an agreed day and deliver them to the delivery address; (1c) Make sure they are safe whilst they are in my custody.
I shall only remove or deliver items into a loft, or similar space, if it is safe, which shall include but shall not be limited to being adequately lit and with a floor I can be certain will support the weight of me and the goods and the access to it being safe. I reserve the right to refuse removal of items from parts of premises which, in my opinion, constitute a health and safety risk to myself or other persons e.g dimly lit lofts, aging stair cases, exposed live wiring, homes where people refuse to remove dangerous pets, homes in which people refuse to keep toddlers or young children at a safe distance or properties in which there has been drug use. If service is refused on any grounds such as these, there will still be a call out charge of £30 owing.
I also refuse to carry out my work if I have good reason to believe a parent wants me to remove a childs belongings, beds, clothes, toys without proof that the the childs’ biological or adoptive parent or gaurdian consents to this. If service is refused on any grounds such as these there will still be a call out charge of £30 owing.
If the decision is made that work cannot be carried out without damage to property or possessions because for example a furniture item is very unstable, or there is an existing stress crack in a marble table top. I will inform you of this, the necessary form will be filled in. Then if you (the client) wish for the work to be undertaken and for us to attempt the manouevre regardless, I will be exempt from taking responsibility for any breakages.
All items you wish me to remove must be disconnected or dismantled prior to the move unless otherwise there will be a surcharge.
I am unable to remove any of the following things
(1d)Goods that require special Government permission to be transported
(1e)Explosive items-gas bottles,aerosol,paints,fire arms,ammunition
(1f)Prohibited and stolen goods,drugs Pets or Live animals/creatures or any goods that require a special licence; (2a) Any goods that require government permission to import or export; (2b) Any food and/or drink that is, or needs to be, refrigerated or frozen; (2c) Any drugs.

This includes, but is not limited to, firearms, ammunition, paints, aerosols, gas bottles and canisters; (2f) Any jewellery, including trinkets and watches, and precious stones or metals or items made from precious metals or including precious stones; (2g) Any money, securities, financial or legal documents, including but not limited to share certificates and leases; (2h) Any collections of stamps, coins or other similar collectable items.
(i) I am unable to remove any appliances which require disconnection by a Corgi registered technician
If such items are removed or stored by us without our knowledge and written agreement to do so then we shall not be liable for any of the legal reprocussions of handling contraband which is likely to result in a criminal conviction. If such a situation did arise, I would inform the police immediately and comply with them in every way. Furthermore in such circumstances I want to make it perfectly clear that any persons attempting to exploit me in this way would be blacklisted for life and I will consider suing you.
Whilst I have many responsibilities under this contract there are some matters that you must be responsible for. These are: (3a) It is your responsibility to declaring to me,the value of any single item within your goods if any of those items exceed £250 so that I can go through the necessary paperwork with you. The best way to insure them adequately would be to request that we organise enhanced levels of insurance for lost or damaged goods on your behalf which I am more than willing to do (3b) Being present, either yourself or through a representative, throughout collection and delivery of the goods; (3c) Checking that all the goods are both collected and delivered; (3d) Checking that nothing is collected and/or delivered in error; (3e) Where I have not agreed in writing to do so,obtaining all necessary permits, licences, customs documents etc that are necessary for the removal to take place. Where I have agreed in writing to obtain any such necessary permits, licences, customs documents (or some of them) to provide all requested information and documentation required to procure them promptly on request; (3f) Preparing the property and goods for the removal, including but not limited to disconnecting all relevant appliances and electronic equipment and emptying and de-frosting any fridges and freezers and where we are not packing, taking all steps to ensure that the goods are packed, packaged and labelled in such manner that they can withstand normal handling during their removal; (3g) Arranging proper security and protection for any goods that will be left in premises which will be unattended or to which third parties may have access either prior to collection or following delivery. (3h) Advising me if you consider that it will not be possible for the vehicles pictured on the home page of this website to be able to park within 20 metres of the door of the property or if access to a property is inadequate for the free and easy movement of the goods into and within the property. (3i) You must, before the commencement of the removal, provide us with a contact address and contact details which I can use if I need to contact you during the removal and/or storage of the goods. If these details change you must inform me. If I contact you in writing using recorded delivery the details you have provided we will be entitled to assume that you have duly received any communication from me. If you wish for your goods to be insured whilst being stored you must arrange this. We cannot arrange such insurance due to FSA Regulation. (3i)You shall be responsible for any losses, expenses or other costs incurred arising from your failure to self pack your goods using adequate packing protection which we take to mean, failing to use bubble wrap to protect fragile items,failing to use professional removal boxes designed to be used by removal companies,instead opting for supermarket boxes which are not designed to withstand much weight inside them. You will be responsible for any losses resulting from your failure to pack expensive electrical items in the exact same packaging as to the one which would of been provided at the time of purchase. Original boxes are purposefully designed to keep items safe, knowing this to be true we think it is reasonable for us to exclude liability when we are put in a position when an electrical item is being transported in an inappropriate container and poorly wrapped.
By entering into this Agreement, you guarantee that:
(3j) The goods to be removed and/or stored are your own property, or-
(3k) The person(s) who own or have an interest in them have given you authority to make this contract and have been made aware of these conditions. You will pay us for any claim for damages and/or costs brought against us if you have not been honest with us with regards to clauses (3j) +(3k)
(3l) It is your responsibility to organise your transport from the collection to the delivery address as if we are delayed by waiting for you to arrive at either address there will be a charge. Customers are prohibited from travelling in my vehicles for insurance purposes. You will not be covered.
(3m) It is your responsility to ask me to remove my shoes, if that is what you want me to do. However, I keep my shoes exceptionally clean and they also serve to protect my toes
(3n) It is your responsibility to make sure that any phone numbers or contact details which you give us are correct,otherwise we will not be responsible for any subsequent problems which arise due to your initial error .
In the removals industry, limited liability is standard practice because the mover does not know the precise value of a customer's goods. If prior to moving an item I notice any damage or weakening already on the piece do not be surprised if I politely bring this to your attention and take photographic evidence. Having done so I will not be liable for any damage caused by disturbing an already weakened item by moving it.
I encourage all our customers to take out independent insurance to cover themselves against losses greater than the limits set out in our terms and conditions and for risks where they have no rights of recourse against the removal contractor. Please check your Home or Contents insurance policy as many home insurance policies already cover you for all risks with regards to your removal. For the avoidance of doubt, I limit liability to £40 maximum per item (all items) in the event of loss or damage caused as a result of my negligence. I also limit liability to £40 per premise in the event that there is damage to your premises.
I exclude all liability for owner packed goods because I have had no control over how they were packed or how well the items inside have been protected.
I also specifiy that the time limit for submitting claims will be at the time at which we complete our work. It is your responsibility to inspect all of your goods before I leave. If you have any problems with any aspect of the work I have undertaken, then you must request and submit a claim form before I leave. In order to claim for a damaged item, a dated receipt with the item's value on it is necessary otherwise your claim will be invalid. Please remeber that store prices fluctuate and that store bought items quickly depreciate. I also specify that I am not in any way liable for any breakages of extremely fragile items unless the box they are in is labelled fragile and you have notified me of the presence of those fragile items as being in the box and we have been through the appropriate paperwork beforehand.
(4a) In the event of direct loss of or damage to your goods, my liability to you is to be assessed as a sum equivalent to the cost of their repair or replacement whichever is the smaller sum, taking into account age, wear and tear, depreciation and condition of the goods immediately prior to their loss or damage, and subject to the maximum liability not exceeding my maximium liability value of £40. For the avoidance of doubt, all liability and compensation for loss shall be calculated as aforementioned and not on a “new for old” basis. In order to initiate the claim process,a claim form must be requested at the time of your removal and before I leave. I reserve the right to always seek to repair a good which has been negligently damaged in the first instance in which case the damage will be limited to the repair costs and not exceeding £40.(4b) It is your responsibility to declare any item valued above £250 in writing to me or request the appropriate form either prior to my arrival, or upon our arrival, failure to do so will mean that you are not icovered in any way and that I will not be liable for any damage caused. Where the lost or damaged item is part of a pair or set, my liability to you, where it is assessed as the cost of replacement of that item, is to be assessed as a sum equivalent to the cost of that item in isolation, not the cost of that item as part of a pair or set and my liability shall not exceed £40.Sometimes there maybe something that has been handed down through your family would be considered irreplaceable due to it's sentimental value. In accordance with this agreement such item will be covered up to the value of my maximum liability amount of £40 suppressing only the monetary loss that you have suffered. While I realease that the replacement you purchase may never substitute the original, in an instance such as this I would hope that you may still recover some of the value or sentiment that you had with the original.
Although I offer clients the opportunity to save money if they help load. I feel it necessary to add to this that I only encourage the fit and able to do so on and on the understanding that you are doing so at you own risk. If you injure yourself whilst moving your goods, I will not be liable for your injuries. That is because you would have injured yourself whether I was there or not, if for example you had hired a van without a driver. I strongly forbid clients from getting upon or into my van to load or unload. If you choose to ignore this and if for example you decide to board my van whilst I am inside your house, if you become injured in any way as a result of being inside or in contact with my vehicle I will not be held liable for any injuries you sustain as I have made it very clear that I forbid any client boarding my vehicle.
(5a) I want to make it perfectly clear, that it is your responsibility to keep all money,jewellery, bank cards, credit cards,keys, documents, files and any other valuables about you person or in a safe during the course of your move and I will not be held liable if you fail to adhere to this rule and then misplace any of the above
Just to reiterate so that I make myself totally clear:
I will not be liable for any injuries which occur as a result of my clients lifting anything of their own, they do so at their own risk.
It is your responsibility to keep your valuables on your person at all times. It is easy to misplace items when moving. By keeping things on your person, it safeguards you from being in the position where you make false alegations against me that you will later regret. If the scenario plays out that your items can not be located and so you call out the police and the police arrest me only to later release me once the items have been safely recovered after being misplaced. In an instance such as this, I will have release papers proving my innocence. I will then seek retribution from you by charging you £500 for the idignity of my being arrested as a result of your carelessness. You will also be liable to be charged £50 for every unnecessary hour that I was held in custody away from my family as a result of your carelessness.
Bespoke Liability Arrangements
If you liase with me in advance, I may agree to accept liability for a higher amount than my standard £40 limited liability cover, in which case I will then liase with my insurance providers and come back to you with the offer of a bespoke insurance quote which will be a one off payment and which will cover you for the items of values over and above the aforementioned maximum value of limited liability of £40 per item or box as this may not be enough to cover some items. I recognise that my customers need proper financial protection which is why I offer to arrange bespoke insurance to cover goods while they are being loaded, transported and unloaded. I recommend all customers with goods over the value of £250 ask me to arrange full "All Risks" - insurance on their behalf. This does not literally cover anything that may happen, but does include cover for damage by breakage due to negligence, vehicle accidents, fire, storm and theft. If something is totally lost or destroyed you will be paid the new replacement value or the item will be replaced as new. If the item can be repaired, the insurers will arrange this if it is cheaper and gives a satisfactory result. Like for Like Insurance – (Approx.cost 5% of Total Value of goods)Claims will be settled on the basis of the new value minus an allowance for age, wear and tear. The excess on this type of insurance is usually £50 of any claim. My advice is don't under-insure. Check the value of your goods. You must calculate the value of your goods. This is your responsibility, because neither myself nor my insurers know the value of your property. For the avoidance of doubt, claims against bespoke liability arrangements can only be made at the time of your removal by requesting a claim form before I leave. All liability and compensation for loss shall be calculated as above and not on a “new for old” basis. I reserve the right to always seek to repair a good in the first instance in which case the damage will be limited to the repair costs. Bespoke liability arrangements are an absolute necessity if you wish to transport antiques, fine art, or expensive items of furniture with me and I unreservedly recommend them because they exist to offer clients the added peace of mind that their valuable items are completely covered by insurance when in transit.

An Item is defined as :- The entire contents of a wardrobe, drawer, box, parcel, package, carton, or similar container; and any other object or thing that is moved, handled or stored by us.
Damage to premises or property
Because third party contractors are frequently present at the time of collection or delivery our liability for loss or damage is limited as follows:
If a third party contractor is on the premises and causes the loss or damage of your goods through their lack of patience or negligence we will not be responsible for the loss or damage. If we cause loss or damage to premises or property other than goods for removal as a result of our negligence or breach of contract, our liability shall be limited to making good the damaged area only up to the value of £40 and we reserve the right to have damaged areas repaired before they are replaced. The claim process can be initiated by requesting a claim form at the time of your removal .If we cause damage as a result of moving goods under your express instruction after we have warned you verbally that to do so in the manner instructed is likely to cause damage, we shall not be liable for damage to premise or property. If we are responsible for causing damage to your premises or to property at the time that you have submitted goods for removal and/or storage, where no warning prior to damaging the premises or property was issued you must inform us of this with immediate effect and request a claim form to iniate the claim process. In booking our service it is fundamental part of your agreement that we will not be liable for delays in transit as we don't have time to estimate every job we do beforehand which can make it difficult to know exactly how long a job will take. Job arrival times are estimates only. We do our best to be on time, but circumstances beyond our control may cause delays such as a client having omitted to tell us about a large amount of items requiring to be moved on an earlier job. No discounts are offered, but as a gesture of goodwill If through no fault of our own we are unable to deliver your goods, we can keep them overnight in storage.
If on completion of a job you have signed our paperwork to say that you are satisfied that you have received your goods in satisfactory condition, you have no further recourse for action. Any damage sustained to any item will be assumed to have happened following our departure.
Claims Time Limit
(12a) For goods delivered by us claims must be notified at the time of delivery and a claim form ought to be requested. Insurers will refuse to pay claims if you do not adhere to these time limits. Allow us to reiterate a second time. If you are unhappy in anyway with our service it is essential that you request a claim form before we leave, otherwise you will invalidate your claim.
Provision of service
(12c) We will do our best to provide service to you by any date we have agreed, but if due to circumstances outside of our control we are unable to we will not be liable for costs in any way.. Mechanical and Electrical Items (13a) It is not possible for us or our insurers to check that electrical goods are working before a move takes place and insurers obviously have no responsibility for pre-existing damage. This means that insurers will only pay for mechanical and electrical breakdown or derangement if there is obviously damage to outer casings. Packing your Goods (14a) Insurers will not pay for the loss or damage to goods packed by the customers, only if there is total loss of a consignment. Our insurance is specially tailored for customers needs and we strongly advise that you purchase “Like for Like” Insurance at 5% of total value to avoid disappointment. (15a) Your Removal Quotation letter is valid for a minimum period of 7 days(16a) in the event of mchanical failure prior to arrival, we will not except liability for any costs incurred by the customer because of this. The van is well maintained, but it also gets a lot of use which can cause parts to wear out.(16b) In the event that your driver is unable to continue due to injury, or to sickness, we will not except liability for any costs incurred by the customer.In such a situation, by booking our service that you are agreeing to settle the monies owed for the work carried out and this figure should be proportionate to the amount of the job completed. (16 c)Part load deliveries onboard at the time of mechanial breakdown or driver sickness will be stored by us, but their onward carriage will be your responsibity. In such situations we will keep in clos contact with you and do all we can to help you to make alternative arrangements.
Cash is the preferred payment method, I do accept Pay Pal, Google Checkout, and Western Union payments for agreed deposit amounts and for box purchase orders.
Upon completion of a job, full payment will be required unless prior discounts have been agreed.
You, the client, is responsible for ensuring that we can park legally at each address. If need be you must apply for permits etc. You will be liable for any parking charges incurred by us if through your lack of foresight we are put in a position where we are forced to park illegally.
In the whole time I have been doing this I have only had to impose supplementary costs a handful of times. It is our clients' responsibility to make sure they have the keys to access their new property and be in posession of any security codes required to operate electric gates or deactivate security systems, at or before the time I arrive to move you in. There will be a nominal fee added upon completion to compensate for time spent waiting around if you do not have the keys on or before this time. Secondly if there is absolutely horrendous access to a property and you have not given me any warning or a chance to figure this into my quote, a nominal charge will be added upon completion to compensate for the extra time spent making exceptionally long carries to and from the van. Doing some of the dismantling and prep work is all part of this job, but if the only way to get everything down from upstairs is to remove a stairlift off the wall or if a really large ornate and intricate piece of furniture requires to be dismantled carefully piece by piece, we would expect our clients to have either done this themselves or hired a lift technician / carpenter to do so. If we are left with no choice and other than to carefully remove a stairlift ourselves, with your consent we will do, however we will not be responsible for that lift and there will be a nominal charge added upon completion to compensate for the time it takes to safely remove it. I recommended that you try to liase with the other party who are moving into or out of either one of the addresses on the same day as you. A little bit of crossover is understandable, removal men expect it from time to time, we say hello to eachother and then get on with it. If however there has been no attempt to communicate with the other party and we all arrive at the same time, this can make your job a lot harder and a lot more time consuming than it otherwise would be and to reflect this a nominal supplementary charge will be levied. As I said at the beginning, I have only ever had to charge a supplement a handful of times.
Charges if you postpone or cancel a removal or delivery
(17a) If you postpone or cancel this contract, we may charge according to how much notice is given. (17b) More than 14 days before the removal was due to start; NIL (17c) Less than 14 days, but more than 8 days before the removal was due to start; 30% of the removal charge. (17d) Less than 8 days before the removal was due to start; 50% of the removal charge. (17e) On the day before the move 80% of the removal charge.
According to these terms and conditions, I shall have a right to withhold and/or ultimately dispose of some or all of the goods belonging to you until you have paid all our charges and any other payments due under this agreement. These include any charges that we have paid out on your behalf. While we hold the goods you will be liable to pay all of our storage charges and other costs incurred by our withholding your goods and these terms and conditions shall continue to apply.We reserve the right to sub-contract work.If we sub-contract, our terms and conditions will still be applicable, however, we want to make it clear that the sub-contractor we have employed is taking responsibility for your things and it is your reponsibility to familiarize yourself with their terms and Conditions as they may differ from my own.
It is at my discretion to choose the method and route by which we travel however in practice we are always willing to please and will take one route as opposed to another if that is what our client requires of us so long as there are no height restrictions or unsuitable road undulations that cause us to put safety first.Unless it has been specifically agreed otherwise in writing in our Quotation, other space/volume/capacity on our vehicles and/or the container may be utilized for consignments of other customers.
This contract shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Court.If any of these provisions is held to be illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part, under and enactment or rule or law, then that provision shall to the extent necessary and insofar as permitted by law and be deemed not to form part of these terms and conditions; and also be deemed to be replaced by such provision as is valid and enforceable and which is as close as permissible to the invalid or unenforceable provision. The validity and enforceability of the remainder of these Conditions shall not be effected.
We are animal lovers ourselves, however we always expect our clients to keep control of their pets on moving day.If failure to control a pet results in the damage of goods or injury to a pet we will not be held responsible for either the damage of goods or for vetinary bills. Please note it is your reponsibility to transport pets and livestock.
